neem oil works great as a way to prevent insect attacks. Diatomaceous earth works really good too. Be careful not to over water, since that can attract bugs too. And yes they do look a little pale, get a better soil and transplant to a bigger container.

Hello @Huicho ! What you mean worms? If you mean earthworms then you don't have to worry about them. Earth worms are beneficial. They decompose organic matter so the nutrients can be available for the plants. If you mean caterpillars, larva's of lepidoptera species and liriomyza then you need to spray with bacillus thuringiensis var. kurstaki and its also a wise move to spray even if you don't have a problem as a precaution measure. The yellowing is nitrogen deficiency that comes from root bound. You need to transplant it and it is crucial to do it at least one week before it goes to flowering stage. Transplant it in a pot 3-4 times bigger than the current one. Happy growing ! :facepunch:

Hi @Huicho! You may consider using a physical barrier, I've managed to build some great protections with plastic bottles (for seedlings), or using tarpaulin around stakes for bigger plants. If you want to prevent slugs & snails from eating your baby, a beer-trap would be a good way to attract them away. You need to mix some flour in beer in a shallow container (split a yoghourt pot in its height) and push it into the ground, so the invaders can fall into. For thrips & spidermites, neem-oil is one of the best organic repellent, mix 12~15 drops of pure neem-oil in a liter of water and spray this solution onto your baby at night or in the early morning. Finally, you can plant some flowers & aromatics in your garden to attract everything away from your Blueberry. Prevention is the key. By multiplying your approaches, you'll win this fight and be rewarded soon ;-) Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing! :facepunch:

The yellowing is probably due to lack of Nitrogen and/or roots-related issue (root-bound). You should transplant this baby into a bigger container with fresh medium and give it a few veg nutrients.

I there ! After 5 weeks it's fair to say that it will be hard to make her healthy again. I think it will not worth it , a 're start could be a better idea bro :sweat::seedling:
